Grains - Lotus Foods Pink Madagascar Rice
Organic Pink Rice is elusively aromatic of cinnamon and cloves. This soft, supple and nutritionally dense rice is milled to retain 66% of its wholesome bran layer, which allows it to cook in only 20 minutes! It is produced by members of the Koloharena Cooperative and adjacent farms using SRI farming practices (or what we call More Crop Per Drop™).
Organic Pink Rice is produced near Madagascar’s large inland lake, Lake Alaotra. The reeds along the shores of the lake are home to the tiny, critically endangered Alaotran Gentle Lemur. It is hoped that SRI farming practices will help reduce degradation of the lemur's dwindling habitat by making existing land more productive without the need for polluting chemicals.
